    Ever since somebody on here pointed out that Paul DiResta says meejum tyre, I can't stop laughing at it. I'm watching FP2 and it's hilarious

    Very wet for the F3 feature race

    Edit: rain is so bad you can't see the cars and race has been red flagged just over half way through.

    Start of FP3 delayed indefinitely. Likely to be cancelled altogether.

    Cancelled, let's see if they try qualifying. Sunday morning will still be wet, but should dry up

    Chris Medland saying a has stopped and teams are on standby. They may actually get it in on time.

    Now might become a classic as track is drying but rain might start anytime again


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,541 ✭✭✭ bennyx_o


    Raining again and seems quite heavy on an already wet track. Would love to see a wet qualy but suspect they'll hold off until tomorrow

    Has F1 ever used those heat blowers used in Nascar/IndyCar for the water?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,541 ✭✭✭ bennyx_o


    Start delayed. With more rain on the way I think it'll be tomorrow before we see any action on track

    No because the application is different, IndyCar uses them on ovals as humid spots are dangerous. And as long as it rains they are pointless.

    Lashing down there now. Can't see anything happening here.

    Track is where "Knittelfeld" is.

    I guess we are likely looking at Qualifying tomorrow morning. Weather forecast says no chance of rain then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,873 ✭✭✭✭ pjohnson


    The TV copter is up in the air so should be good.

    Just let the grid be decided by FP2 - I can't listen to anymore of that arrogant prat Ted Kravitz. :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,184 ✭✭✭ Jordan 199


    I love the shade of grass there. A nice rich green.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,778 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    FP2 it is for the grid then. Qualifying tomorrow does not interest me.

    I miss the times when they used to race in this weather and let the drivers earn their salaries.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,778 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    Alonso or Jenson would not have had a problem racing or qualifying with some rain.

    Its nothing to do with drivers. Its actually safety. The medical chopper currently cannot safely clear the mountains to make it to Graz. If a driver needed to get to hospital they'd just be stuck on the track.

    And here we go!

    I’m pleasantly shocked. Really looked wet when safety car was circulating.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,844 ✭✭✭ Cool_CM


    Wonder how long this will last...


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,111 ✭✭✭ Top Dog


    This could be eventful with everyone on track to get a time on the board


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,873 ✭✭✭✭ pjohnson


    Nice of Grosjean to get completely off track to avoid slowing Vettel :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 351 ✭✭ BikeRacer


    The Williams lads are loving this
